Flaunting the dress, Sitara posted a picture of herself on Instagram and wrote, “From my favorite actress to me Thank you @aliaabhatt for this cute little dress!! Made my day. Simply love it. Also wishing @edamamma all the best and hope you shine for all the kids out there! #EcoFriendly #OutfitOfTheDay.”
